Rosazzo Bianco DOC Terre Alte

Classification: DOC Colli Orientali del Friuli

Varietal: Sauvignon, Friulano & Pinot Bianco

Vintage: 2016

Region: Friuli Venezia Giulia

Awards:

Created in 1981, Terre Alte is considered one of Italy's most prestigious white wines. The balanced blend of Friulano, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon grapes, estate-grown at Rosazzo in the historic Terre Alte vineyards, yelds a superbly elegant wine with a profusion of intense fruit and flower aromas. A wine of outstanding structure, Terre Alte acquires a wonderfully complex bouquet of tertiary aromas with bottle ageing.

Technical Notes

Vinification: The bunches were carefully destemmed and left to macerate for a short period. Next, the fruit was soft crushed. The must obtained was then allowed to settle. The Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, where they matured for about ten months. The Friulano fermented and aged in small casks of French oak. The Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon mature in stainless steel while the Friulano stays in small oak casks. After ageing for about ten months, the wines were blended. The bottled wine was aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for about 9 months.

Soil: Marl and sandstone flysch of Eocene origin
